I really disliked last week's painting, so it no longer exists! I painted this over the red wave. The colors were just too disturbing for a wave. Greens and blues are much more soothing.
I wasn't sure what would happen when I tried to layer over the red and orange. Since orange is the compliment of blue, I was afraid that I would end up with mud. I was pleasantly surprise to find that the colors didn't really mix. I love how the bits of red and orange are peeking through. That gives a nice energy to the painting.
The foam on the crest of the wave is very textural, which reads nicely in person.
